1967 Swedish Home Retains All Its Glorious Brick and Teak Wood

And shows off lovely flea market furniture

In Malmö, Sweden's Solbacken neighborhood, architect couple Asa Dyberg and Claes R. Janson found their personal "brick castle" in an unassuming 1967 gem. The home, designed by Swedish architect Jan Löfqvist for his own family, offers a soothing combination of pale brick walls, teak floors, and pine woodwork. As the couple tells Elle Decor Sweden, the only major change they made is the kitchen, which sports a sleeker, more modern and open design. And the furniture? There are quite a few flea market and auction scores, including the armchairs by the fireplace in the living room. The rest came from Ikea and the Swedish department store Åhléns.
